by Dr. Don Kuehle

Life Stacks Up

ShepherdCalls_WPOn a shelf beside my desk, I have a “stack of stuff.” Mail, magazines, and other “stuff” arrives more rapidly than I can process it. Each day I search through the new arrivals. Much of it I can throw away quickly. Some demands immediate attention — bills and personal correspondence; but then there are the “I don’t know what to do with this” items. Often I put those in my

My country has just celebrated the July 4th holiday. Freedom has been celebrated and thanks have been expressed for the freedoms that we have. It is marvelous to be free to speak, free to exercise religion, free to possess weapons to defend ourselves, free to assemble, free to print things critical of the government, free to pursue life and happiness.

All our freedoms are wonderful and
